Introduction: Any physical transformation first demands an internal one....
I get it, life happens. Before you know it years have gone by and you've tried every diet and exercise plan in the book. Had some progress but gained more weight. It's a vicious cycle isn't it? But it isn't ALL your fault. You've tried right? but the information is confusing and overwhelming and you haven't REALLY learned anything that will help you long term...You've mostly been told by your trainer to "lift this and that for this long and this many times". You know that much but why aren't these "new habits" sticking?
My name is Alex Cook and for the last 10 years I have helped hundreds of people make meaningful change in their life through mindset practice as well as diet and exercise. My guess is you are not visiting this page to get a few tips and pointers on what is the best chest exercise or what workout will help me shape my butt...if that is you, no judgement but my coaching probably isn't going to be for you...
One of the reason you may not be making the changes you want to see in your life or health is because you're going about doing these tasks ( exercise more, eat less) with the same mentality, mindset and perspective that is actually holding you back (the voice that says "im not good enough" or "this is too hard, I NEED someone in person to help me").
Its like asking your old computer to do the work of a brand new one...its not possible or at the very least is going to be very slow and frustrating...
It is why it is SO important that you start with the internal growth SO THAT you can achieve the physical result.

I have worked with people from all walks of life from business owners, corporate executives, CEO's, Emmy nominated producers and TV show hosts to stay at home mothers, fathers, you name it. One thing they all have in common is they all have a busy life and a lot on their plate. Making things convenient, doable and sustainable is the foundation for success. True change takes a lot of work and my coaching is definitely NOT for someone who isn't willing to put in the effort. At the same time I believe putting in the effort doesn't mean it has to be hard. I'm here to help navigate you through the process and make sure you are making progress each step of the way, because lets be realistic here; if it was a workout plan and a diet you were looking for then you could Google your way to that information. In creating real change in life the quickest most efficient way is to work with someone who can help you make progress.
Common Misconceptions on Losing Body Fat:
MYTH: I need an in-person coach to work with me to achieve my goals because I don't know what I'm doing and I am not motivated.
TRUTH: The reality is that if you are only motivated when someone is standing next to you "barking orders" then the second that someone is not there it is an excuse to not to the work required outside of that time. I have seen it a million times. You simply need accountability and a plan for success. The truth is there are 168 hours in a week and working out intensely with a trainer for 3 or 4 hours a week will NOT get you the body you want. It is true that exercise is a piece of the puzzle but your fat loss driver is going to be diet and your ability to manage your stress, hormones and lifestyle. Exercise is RARELY the driver for fat loss, instead it will be many other factors in your life that you are NOT addressing.
MYTH: If I eat less and exercise more I will lose the weight I want.
TRUTH: While that may work in the short term it will NOT work long term. Most dieters take this approach and it also why 96% of diets fail and 66% gain all the weight back. Your metabolism will compensate for the huge caloric gap that is produced. For example if you consume 1200 calories but are burning 2200 calories you are in a deficit of 1000 calories. Sounds good right? until your metabolism gets stressed and compensates in the form of bad sleep, unpredictable energy crashes, increased hunger and food cravings and moodiness (hangry?). Try staying on a diet with all that, good luck. Balancing your metabolic hormones while being in an effortless caloric reduction is key to sustainable long term results that you are after.
I get it, it is NOT easy to navigate all the information out there and it can be very frustrating not getting the results you want. To get a new result you have to be willing to do something different. Nothing new happens in the familiar habits and routine. You may seek out what you THINK is going to help you and what you think is going to get you over the hump. For a better future you must be willing to step into something different and that ALWAYS means something unfamiliar and new....
